The Capoeira Class

Thereís something for everyone in Contra Mestre Marquinho Coreba's Capoeira classes. His style of teaching engages students of all ages, varying levels of physical fitness and experience, and a diversity of backgrounds. The Capoeira Classes are high-energy, full-body workouts ó but, most importantly, theyíre both challenging and fun.
Students begin by learning the Capoeira fundamental movements such as kicks, escapes and sweeps. Next, a progression of sequences is built upon these basic exercises. Eventually, the sequences develop into a fluid dialogue of movement with a partner. In essence, Capoeira is a game of simulated attack and escape. It can be theatrical, humorous, and mischievous, and sometimes it is aggressive and athletic. C.M. Coreba brings together these various elements in his teaching. Capoeira Classes often end with the traditional "roda," giving students the opportunity to practice their techniques while playing the exhilarating game of Capoeira. There arenít many rules in Capoeira, but there are many interesting traditions, customs, and subtle points of etiquette, which C.M. Coreba explains in his classes.
Class energy and inspiration are derived from the infectious Brazilian Capoeira music, which features unique instruments such as the berimbau, pandeiro, and atabaque. C.M. Corebaís musical talents contribute to the richness of his classes.
The series of movements in Capoeira reflect the agility, aerobic endurance, and discipline of martial arts in combination with flexibility, balance, and core strength. Then add the rhythm, coordination, and joy of dance, and the result is the art of Capoeira. But thatís not all. In addition to the physical and mental components of this unique art form, thereís the very basic satisfaction of knowing youíre part of something special.
If your goal is to burn calories, learn a new skill, or just have fun, Contra Mestre Marquinho Coreba's Capoeira classes offer it all. New students are always encouraged. Just wear comfortable clothes such as loose-fitting pants and light-colored T-shirt, and bring water and an open mind.
